Art & Industrial Design
KS3 students have been focusing on 'Still life and Objects' and looked at the work of Michael Craig-Martin and Pop Art artists to study colour, composition and shape. They have been practising observational drawing. Using their imaginations they been working on improving their painting techniques and created very interesting outcomes.
Year 7 looked at the traditional celebrations such as the Olympic Games, the Venice Carnivals and the Day of the Dead, producing really creative 3D work and masks.
Literacy in Art
Year 8 Theme: 'Buildings'
Year 8 students looked at the topic 'Architecture' and the different buildings that each society has. Students worked in groups to create large murals. They researched and put together big collages using images and icons from different cultures and countries. Most of the students selected and shared personal experiences related to a trip, holiday place or visit. When the mural was complete, they presented in front of their class.
